    Sincerely hoping that you make a quick and complete recovery buddy.
    As a regular bike rider nothing worries me more than a catastrophic blowout . One minute you’re fine , the next you have no control whatsoever.
    When you look at the out of control bikers on the roads it goes to show how little they comprehend the unexpected but so many car drivers now have such a bad attitude towards bikers I worry that if I ever loose control due to a blowout that they’d play their suicide game on an innocent , responsible rider simply because they’re on a bike. I’ve seen it many times before unfortunately.

    I pray for a full and speedy recovery. May the road victim be surrounded by family and friends on the pathway ahead. May God guide the doctors and His peace be felt by the individual- He is able.
